The Day the Angels Came

The Day the Angels Came
a grandpa's prayer and poem for Kyrie Dawn

Wednesday, April 4, the day we heard of the explosive growth of the tumors

Alas! O, Lord what is it that I hear?
Is it Your angels coming for our Kyrie Dawn?
O, please Lord, keep them at bay--
If just for one more day.

Thursday, April 5, Holy Thursday

O, Lord, what is this I hear?
Is it that You need another little angel to be near?
O, please Lord, please Lord, don't take our Kyrie dear.
Could You please keep Your angels away,
and we could have her just one more day?

Friday, April 6, Good Friday

O, precious, sweet Jesus, is this the day?
No, no, dear Lord, not today--
This is Your day that You died to save.
Again, please Dear God, let us be selfish
and keep sweet Kyrie another day.

Saturday, April 7, Holy Saturday Easter Vigil

Thank you dear God in heaven
for yet another precious day--
For we all know things will be done your way.
Little Kyrie Dawn is fighting so very hard--
Yesterday she three her ball three times
till her tiny arm got tired.

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom God's love entrusts her here,
Ever this day be at her side
To light, to guard, to rule to guide. Amen.

Sunday, April 8, Easter Sunday

Dear God in Heaven, Your angels came last night,
As we all knew that someday they might.
They came around the hour of seven
to take our precious one to her
special place in heaven.
Sweet Jesus, we know that you, too, love the little ones,
so to You we give You our little Kyrie Dawn--
And in the end, it is always Your will that will be done.

Amen.

Love,
Papa

We will miss her everyday, for the rest of our time here on earth. We can rest in knowing that God has her in His mighty arms.

She fought the ugly monster that cancer was...with all her little body had...and in her honor and in her memory we will continue to fight that beast, with all we have.

She will never be forgotten or forsaken.

I love her sweet little heart, and I love her family. She came from good people...and I'm proud to join with you all, to find the cure and prevent another family from experiencing this pain.

Love you all. My prayers are with you today...

PS. I'll be watching for butterflies, I bet I see one today!

Hoping to carry a little of the load today. Kyrie has done things in my life that would not be possible without knowing her story. There is no silver lining, but we know that with Christ, we'll see her again. Go Kyrie Go!
